I have been a client for some time. I have never been disappointed.. quality and style is great
When the pandemic began and resources were sparse, I relied on National Picnic to design and sew masks for the family. It was a three layer mas and the quality was outstanding with different layers of fabric for an outer and inner layer. In between was a pocket where one could add a filter if one so chooses. What I especially liked was the wire which allowed me to tightly form the mask around the bridge of my nose, thus avoiding the dreaded fogging of the glasses.
This was a hearty mask with maximum protection for masks of its kind. As we entered the hotttttttt summer months, I continued to wear my NP mask secure that I had the right protection to protect others. I also had a gaiter which was certainly more breathable (and I assumed not as effective) but in the ballpark of my NP mask. Now I am seeing studies that a gaiter may actually be WORSE than wearing nothing at all! Not good.
Thus I was happy to see that NP was also offering a 2-ply shaped fit mask with was lighter and more breathable while also maintaining the good form of the 3-ply. Doing the right thing really matters to be, but sometimes a lighter mask comes in handy (when walking outdoors, for example). I feel like the two ply offers a bit more comfort when I am active, while not skimping on the materials and fit.
Oh, I have also gotten a lot of compliments on my NP masks. :-)
These masks are great quality and great fit, very comfortable.
I ordered this mask for my mom to match with a signature top that I got for her birthday… the fabric is beautiful and comfortable, and she loved the added bonus that it matches her top. A double-win for the middle daughter! :)
Now I can be safe in style!
